Meatball Calzones

Meatball Calzones

These meatball calzones are a real crowd pleaser and fun to make. A hearty, simple and perfect family meal.

If you follow my blog, then you know I’m a big fan of Guy Fieri’s Diners Drive-ins and Dives show. I could watch that show all day long and I probably have. I just find it intriguing  to see all the interesting dishes served at these places. One of these dishes served at a diner, which I can’t remember where or what it was called, was this wonderful meatball calzone.

I thought it was a great idea. We already make pizza at our house almost every weekend, with home made pizza dough, and I make meatballs quite often at home as well so I thought it’d be a great idea to pair the two together. I mean it’s a meatball calzone, how bad could it be?
